"Our goal is to have 90% Native American (encompassing all the Americas from the Arctic to the Antarctic) music and up to 10% of music from those who specifically support Indigenous causes or have spent significant time learning Native instruments and styles."
If you find some cool art via RedBubble, Etsy, TeeSpring, etc: Don't buy it! There's a very high chance it's stolen, and your money will NOT go to the artist.
Take a moment to check the artist's pages elsewhere and see that you're looking at one of their own listings, or if they have their stuff elsewhere.
If you can't find the artist via the shop page, then it's almost certainly stolen, please don't buy it, save your money for something else.

"I went digital," the dragon said, showing the SD card they lay on.

I spent a day helping to maintain a 3000-year-old hillside chalk monument with a group from Long Now London. Crushing chalk into the ground with a hammer was so satisfying that I kept forgetting to enjoy the view, and I had some great conversations with the interesting people that the task attracted (including @mdales)
